Tryin' to keep the faith... some days are easier than others... I do have some good stuff going on with my customers, and then there's the typical fallout, people change their minds, their circumstances change, etc.... So, it ain't going as well as it could be or nearly as well as I would like it. But, it's quite possibly going better than I deserve, lol!! (that's not to say I don't deserve good things in life, but after the way I lived for so long, I don't wonder if maybe I got off easy when it came to consequences) I like to try and remember that there was a time when I didn't deserve much good karma for the way I was living. It's tough in the sales game not to get excited over "potential" business. So many things can torpedo a real estate deal, and right now, I am in a sea full of torpedos. So, I really have to rely on my faith that HP will see me through to where I need to be, that I need not spend time in the "poor me's" or worrying about our future. I know I need to keep my ass in line, keep trying to do the next right thing, and most of all keep trying to cultivate an attitude of service and gratitude. Ok, that's two attitudes... he he So, once again, that will be my plan for today, work my arse off, dig, dig, dig to fill that pipeline, and try to be of service, paying the setbacks no more mind than need be.

Prayer for the day...

God/HP, please help me stay sober again today. Thank You for the continuous blessing of sobriety and good health. I am grateful to You for this program of recovery You led me to. Thank You for a great HG meeting last evening, with lots of laughs and good fellowship. I ask a prayer for my friend John who is suffering from some poor health these days. I ask for Your Will and that he have the courage to persevere. My wife is struggling with her health and hanging out with a 4, almost 5 yr old every day. I pray that I may not add to the insanity, that she may find Your Will and Grace in her life today and that Ian may find some peace in his day that he could possibly stop talking for a second or two he he! God, thank You for the blessings you continue to give me, and please help me remember that these are a result of my communion with You, my efforts to do the next right thing, to be of service to You and Your Message, for those about me.

peace to y'all!

No doubt you are in a tough line of work to try to stay in the moment, etc. Keeping a good attidue would be impossible for me, but you seem to be working it out, Scott.
Your prayers continue to be an inspiration to me. You ARE "of service", in part, right here on this very blog.
Peace (and heads up),
Scout
